Hey uh.. not to bother you by any means.. but can I get a link to those tips for drawing people crying you did once?? I looked through all the tags and couldn't find it myself, sorry..

Oh, it’s no bother! http://whatisthiscutenonsense.tumblr.com/post/147379834506/eruhamster-retroautomaton-some-crying-tips 

But honestly, I’m not actually too happy with those anymore. They’re pretty old. I still sort of hold the same value when I draw them, but here’s some more updated tips, if that’s alright. 

One of the biggest complaints I got with those tips was that just a single tear is good enough. Well yes and no. Tears are just a helpful tool, and of course not everyone cries the same, so yes, a single tear can be just as impactful, as long as your emotion and context carries the message. 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s heavy crying. And this can take many forms. Again, the face has to carry the intensity of the emotion; the tears are just there to emphasize it. More intensity, (for some people) does tend to include more liquids and leaking. 

And of course none of it has to be perfect or even. As I love to touch on, crying is messy and ugly. It brings out the most strained emotions. So none of it has to be symmetrical to get the point across- if anything, it gives it more movement. 

I of course draw in a more cartoony fashion, so if you did want to go on the more realistic end of the spectrum, you can focus on the actual physics of tears and how act and react on the face. More realistically, they come from the inner eye, and are much smaller. They tend to fall in wayward paths, slowly, but  sperraticly, and in droplets or thin streams. You can also add streak marks and flush up the face, depending on the subject. 

I’m glad you liked my old tips, and I hope these new ones help!

Sometimes it makes things hard, but Kuroo doesn’t really mind

There are no more lesbians at my school

Tw- homophobic language and sexual assault.

When I was 13 I entered my first ever (what I considered) proper relationship with a girl in my year whom I’d liked for a while. If we’d known how badly either of us would be treated once our peers started to perceive is as “lezzers” then I doubt either of us would have openly come out as a couple.

As a small 5,2 nerdy “effeminate” girl I got off lightly. By which I mean-
-I was sexually and verbally harassed constantly by the same two kids for OVER EIGHT MONTHS whilst at least 3 teachers knew and looked the other way

- My friends told me daily that homosexuality was unnatural and gross and we should be ashamed

- At the swimming pool I was told to “Fuck off you lezzer” by a group of girls I barely even knew

-Boys would constantly ask me inappropriate questions about pussy and my sexual relations while their mates looked on and laughed

- Those same boys still asking me those questions TO THIS DAY. Their harassment and inappropriate behaviour goes unpunished and unnoticed by staff three years after it began

-Boys who weren’t rude would suddenly treat me like I was the most sexually desirable thing on the planet. It wasn’t empowering, it was distressing and confusing

My girlfriend at the time was a 6 foot tall muscular girl with very small breasts and a “masculine” appearance. Kids were much ruder to her

-Taking her name Esme and rechristening her “Lesme”

- Yelling slurs like butch and dyke at her daily

- Telling her to go cut for being “so gross” after seeing her self harm scars

-Other fuckwittery she’d forcibly cover my ears during so that I didn’t have to hear it

After about six months she dumped me and made a very public show of having sex with as many boys as possible. When she dumped me she told me she wasn’t gay and she only started flirting with me again after she’d moved away to another school.


These days I know I’m Bisexual, and one day I might date a guy and all this will be behind me. I could comfortably and happily date a boy and I know that suddenly I’ll stop being THE lesbian. I’ll be left alone. But that begs the question- What happens to the actual lesbians? The girls who like girls and can’t just bi their way out of the harrasment? You want to know what happened to all the young lesbians at my school?

The three lesbians in the year below me had their personal boundaries broken by boys all the time. Boys who’d push between them at lunch time and touch them inappropriately. Boys who’d see them holding hands and yell homophobic slurs. Boys who were “just being funny” Boys who still do this unchallenged by staff. One of these girls now identifies as a straight boy. The other two are gender fluid.

The two girls in my year who have been a couple for about five years, one of whom is gay and the other is Bisexual, were verbally abused multiple times in front of me and countless times beyond that. Both self harm and now one of them (who was told to get out of the girls bathroom for looking like a guy when we were 12) identifies as non binary. She is also (by identification) no longer a lesbian.

Her best friend is now also non-binary. And also no longer a lesbian.

There were once quite a few open lesbians at school and now there are non. A few bi girls exist here and there but for the most part they either stay off the radar by remaining single/dating guys or by dating girls outside of school. I know of a few closeted lesbians (like my little sister and her secret girlfriend) but any other girls who don’t exclusively like men identify as queer.

There are no more lesbians at my school. Make of this what you will.

The erasure of women in the Hamilton fandom is shocking. Mostly shocking because it is supposedly one of the most modern and accepting fandoms and yet there is still such clear disregard for the ladies. I’ve seen so many people default shipping and taking the women clearly out of their deserved place. Please, please stop, we should be way past this.

On Alisha Diphda

I love Alisha. I really do. In fact, she might actually be my favourite female character in Tales of Zestiria (it’s so hard to pick favourites in Zestiria, since everyone’s so amazing and lovable). She’s kind, responsible, and fully capable of standing up for her morals and doing what she believes is right. Her strength and resolve are truly inspiring, and despite everything she goes through, she somehow manages to keep pushing forward for what she believes is important to her and the people she cares about. I actually see a lot of myself in Alisha–her idealism and slight naivety are things I can relate to, and her strength and persistence remind me to keep my head up and never give up on the things I value and believe in.

Hey so I don’t know much about the stories beyond what is presented in Moana, but I’m pretty sure that at least the character of Maui as depicted in the movie is nonbinary!!??!?!?!!!

In his introduction he keeps interrupting Moana to add on to the list of descriptors she’s using for him. First “Hero of men” then “Hero of men and women.” Then he clarifies “I mean everyone. It’s not just a guys and girls thing. Hero of all.”

Then during his song he says “I’m just an ordinary demi-guy.”

He outright SAYS that. 

So. 

That is great.

These have probably been done so many times before but here’s some dumb meme valentines I made last night. Happy Valentine’s Day and enjoy!

Describing Alex Kingston to my dad
